In the lush valleys where the Himalayas meet the foothills of Hindu Kush, a great sculptural tradition flourished between the 2nd-century B.C. and the 6th-century A.D. in the ancient region of Gandhara (today northwest Pakistan). Imagery drew on forms and ideas moving, with trade, along the Silk Road linking the Mediterranean, India, Central Asia, and China. Travel to this fascinating place and time in this series of lectures examining a vibrant and truly cross-cultural body of Buddhist sculpture.Buy tickets/get more info now
